    Promising review: "I ordered squishies from three different sellers that had higher ratings, and out of the three these were by far the nicest and best quality.

    Promising review: "They are so cute. I love them. I just got them, but the material doesn't seem to be too thin. I originally bought them for the chairs of a dinning room table I do not use often. So mainly for show. But had a pair left and put them on a small bench I use when changing litter or doing something more floor level. So far has worked great protecting the floor. I may need to order more for my TV trays and folding tables." —Denise
